    ok ok.. question..whhhhyyy would you attempt to take off from a moving vehicle? I doubt it has anything to do with the compass but more along the lines of wind drag on the rotors before they have gotten up to a decent RPM to counter the drag, therefore causing the unstable craft to crash..bad idea.
